It's a good lens, I hope you'll get it soon :)

Nice! :cool:

My girlfriend has Canon 24-105mm L and my next lens will be Samyang/Rokinon 14mm 2.8
I'm already selling my Canon 17-40mm and Canon 50mm f1.4.

I think we have similar taste in lenses ;)

I owned a rokinon 14mm f2.8 and replaced it with the 17-40.

No question on the sharpness of rokinon. but since it's mostly for landscape, you're not using 2.8 at landscape anyway. for architectural, the perspective distortion is too much(with FF). You also cannot use filters so you have to wait 'til dark if you want long exposure shots.

Also, if you plan to use it at certain aperture like f5.6, you have to set that aperture to the current AF lens at 5.6 first before switching. i don't know if the chips will help with this.

But yes i sold my 50mm f1.4 for the 85mm f1.8

Did you do this so it would read f5.6 in the exif data? If not, care to elaborate more on this?

(Vinz correct me if im wrong), but I think he was referring to metering. I had a bug with mine that meant if I didnt match the aperture of the lens I was removing to the aperture I was using on the 14 it didnt meter properly. I installed the AF confirm chip and all my issues went away. I should point out though that I seem to be in the minority with this issue as most on the 14 thread dont have it

Yeah, I don't have that issue, so that's why I couldn't relate.

i never have the chips so i guess that's the problem with it not having a chip.

Mesmer, did you have a chip on yours?

Nope. And no problems metering.

Nice, Im a beginer but curious how do you white balance? Auto or using a white in the room or grey card? White looks crisp mine would have looked a bit blue or yellow.

Shooting RAW would let you change it in post as well, so even if you get the shot wrong you can always fix WB.

Thanks ya I try and adjust my raw photos in Lightroom but sometimes still end up with that blue or yellow on my whites. Im still pretty new I just thought I have been getting a little better results WB from the camera than fine tuning in PP

In wedding, you have no time to use grey card or color checker passport. Shoot raw and AWB.

in controlled environment, you can try a grey card and use custom white balance. or to be more accurate a color checker passport.

I shoot RAW and not worry too much, but still at churches and indoors I often use Kelvin instead of AWB
